To help ensure continued access to Queensland’s digital public records, Queensland State Archives is dealing with the challenges of deterioration of storage media, obsolescence of software and hardware, as well as the complexities associated with authenticity and integrity of digital records.
Keeping records together
The QSA Government Recordkeeping team have been
looking at how we do things and how we can make it easier for public
authorities to manage their public records. We’re working with our clients to
make sure we are ‘Keeping records together’.
Going to War
'Going to War' is the first in a series of
exhibitions depicting the Queensland home front experience through the records
of the Queensland Government. Stop by to see it in our foyer at Runcorn.
Many of the records in the exhibition are in our 'On the Home Front' online exhibition, and you can enjoy readings of telegrams and letters from the exhibition on our YouTube channel.
